Definition of Fear of flowers

Fear of flowers: An abnormal and persistent fear of flowers. Sufferers experience undue anxiety even though they realize they face no threat from flowers. Any genus or species of flowers can instill fear, as can any flower part, such as a petal or stem.

Fear of flowers is termed "anthophobia," a word derived from the Greek "anthos" (flower) and "phobos" (fear).
